Statement of Responsibility
This statement of responsibility is issued by me as Chief Executive of the Ministry of Fisheries in terms of section 35 of the Public Finance Act 1989. I am responsible for the preparation of the Ministry’s financial statements and statement of service performance and the judgements made in the process of producing those statements.
I have discharged my responsibilities to establish and maintain a system of internal control procedures that provide reasonable assurance as to the integrity and reliability of financial reporting.
In my opinion, the financial statements and the statement of service performance fairly reflect the financial position and operations of the Ministry for the year ended 30 June 2008, and I authorise issuance of these statements on 16 September 2008.
Chief Financial Officer
